Netflix Streams Coming to Virgin Media TiVo Boxes

By Gary Cutlack on at

Two of our media titans are set to collide, with old world cable TV and ISP network Virgin Media set to start carrying content from new media streaming darling Netflix.

Users of the Virgin Media TiVo box will soon be able to open up a Netflix app, which will carry content like House of Cards, Orange is the New Black and the insanely popular Breaking Bad, all of which will be accessible to users with subscriptions and via the usual pay-as-you-go options -- and Netflix users can use their existing account details to login and start the action.

A pilot scheme starts this week, with 40,000 Virgin media homes trialling the service ahead of a full launch some time later this year.
